Panda on a tricycle – tattoo

4 Dec

The art of Scotty Munster certainly is different – I can imagine it’s what you would see if you took mushrooms then looked at a more normal tattoo… Still can’t get me head around panda on a tricycle tattoo mind you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Burning skulls

21 Nov

OK so I have seen many skull candles (including the luke warm ones from All Saints)) but these from Moleta Munro x Koff are AMAZING! OK so given £48 for a candle is soooooooo expensive but when the look this good it is very tempting. This is massively on my Christmas list I can tell you – pleeeeeeease can someone get it for me ;-)

Too often its true beauty is over looked we see only death, but this situation is changing with the increase in our interest in the natural world, the embracing of museums, and appreciation of design all contribute to a new aesthetic.

Swimming in Black Milk

14 Nov Snapz Pro XScreenSnapz001

Bear with me on this as Black Milk is a Australian label and one which I totally and utterly adore. Being Australian (ie summer time) they have just released a series of swimming costumes which ROCK. I know it could not be less seasonal but you might, like me, be tempted to get in on the action now and store it away safely until your next holiday! 100% going to buy the top one for starters.

This china light fitting from Alex Garnett is beautiful – and I have to say at £150 pretty reasonable too. I am so getting one (to treat myself as having terrible time at the moment): via Notcot

Human chocolate skulls – Easter repost

1 Apr

SkullRotationSM

How can I not remind you about the world’s best chocolate innovation – solid chocolate skulls cast from REAL human skulls in a choice of chocolate, including Fair Trade & 80 per cent cocoa. Best of all there is also bone chocolate – a delicious blend of Belgian milk and white chocolates, resembling the colour of freshly cleaned human bones. Yum yum yum.

I also found this awesome chocolate one but I can’t identify the source:
